The HDF Group’s technical mission is to provide rapid, easy and permanent access to complex data. FishEye's vision is "Synthesizing the world’s real-time data". This white paper is intended for embedded system users, software engineers, integrators, and testers that use or want to use HDF5 to access, collect, use and analyze machine data. FishEye has developed an innovative process that provides the most efficient method to expose data from embedded systems that simplifies and liberates data for real-time analysis, machine learning, and cloud-enabled services....

HSDS (Highly Scalable Data Service) is a REST-based service for reading and writing HDF data. Initially developed as a NASA Access 2015 project, the HDF Group has continued to invest in the project, and as we'll see, the latest version has a bevy of new and interesting features....

We are pleased to post this white paper from The HDF Group intern, Chen Wang. This paper looks at the steps of analyzing and tuning the HACC-IO benchmarks, the impact of different access patterns, stripe settings and HDF5 metadata. It also compares the five benchmarks on two different parallel file systems, Lustre and GPFS and shows that HDF5 with proper optimizations can catch up the pure MPI-IO implementations. An I/O Study of ECP Applications...
